“I am pleased to announce an excellent set of year end results. Our profit is at record levels and has increased for the eighth consecutive year – evidence of both an expansive and a resilient business model. We know our strategy of having the right brands in the right locations and excellent execution is the right one - and during the year we’ve managed our portfolio of dealerships to reflect that.

Generating shareholder value through acquisitions is one of the things we do best. We will be making more acquisitions and have the balance sheet strength to do so. We’ve made a good start to the current financial year and have a healthy order book for the delivery of new cars in the important month of March. Our strategy of acting as a consolidator – and growing organically - leaves us ideally placed for growth and increased earnings in 2017 and beyond.”
